Yet another story of mail-in ballots coating a garbage can has emerged, this time in Louisville, Kentucky, where more than 100 ballots were found in a dumpster.
The U.S. Post Office confirmed to the Courier Journal that the crime was discovered on Thursday.
Post Office inspectors discovered 112 ballots in a dumpster in the Jeffersontown area of Louisville, the paper reported on Friday.
“USPS OIG Special Agents are working to identify who is responsible for discarding the mail,” special agent Scott Balfour said. “When the investigation is concluded, the case will be presented for federal prosecution to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.”
Nore Ghibaudy, spokesman for the Jefferson County Clerk’s office, said the agency was shocked by the incident. He added that some of those who had missing ballots had already contacted the office asking where their ballot had gone.
The discarded ballots were reportedly found by a someone who was throwing other trash into the dumpster and noticed the ballots.
Still, despite the nation-wide reports of similar situations, Ghibaudy said the trashed ballot situation was an isolated incident.
Agent Balfour also said that voters should not worry overmuch and said the “vast majority of the Postal Service’s 630,000 employees are hard-working, trustworthy individuals who work around the clock to deliver the nation’s mail.”
